Using the mainstream sound with a twist

For more information on Blest please visit htt://www.blestmusic.com

With a distinct style and voice Blest has steadily become one of the Southwest’s most talented artists with the potential to be a star on the rise. Constantly growing, many musical influences contribute to the always evolving style ranging from Tupac to Slipknot, Kanye West to IIO. Using his passion for music and the constant hunger to be heard, Blest has been on the path to join rap’s elite. Throughout the years Blest released several underground albums and demos, but not till he released the remake of What I Say did he start making a name for himself. Selling over 2,000 units and selling over 4,000 downloads through major online retailers, the years of work were finally starting to pay off. He also experienced his first single Do You Really getting some local radio play on Clear Channel’s Power 102. Feeling confident Blest launched his first local tour called The 915 Obscenity Tour, where he made history in El Paso to be the only performing local artist to bring in thousands of people throughout the course of the tour. Determined to get better as an artist Blest got back into the studio where he would start working on his follow up album Patiently Waiting. Family problems and financial pressures would keep him working on his album for over two years. After the album was completed, Blest was forced to build his audience once again. The single Sexy began radio play in the Los Angeles based show Pocos Pero Locos which would open the door for radio exposure throughout several cities in the United States. With the power of the internet Blest was able to reach a worldwide audience getting radio exposure on online radio stations and getting fans from all over the globe. The album will eventually hit over 15,000 sold downloads in the first six months, making it his most successful album to date. Now this artist is on a mission to take his career to a whole new level. With the release of his first mixtape Blest-Unleashed and the follow up album Self Made, Blest is looking at new horizons. The rookie rapper who couldn’t find a single producer in the beginning of his career has contributions to the mixtape from producers in the United States, Mexico, the UK and other countries helping to develop the sound and direction of the project. Blest has also been featured on several projects from small independent artists to artists signed to major labels. Constantly growing and determined to overcome all obstacles, the once timid rapper has now become an underground movement. Years of work have shown that Blest has the drive and the talent to continue to reach for the stars.
